Our Focus

The Dalhousie Behavioural Medicine Lab is located within the School of Health and Human Performance, Department of Kinesiology, at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Our research group focuses on investigating and understanding the determinants (i.e. barriers and facilitators) and impact of physical activity on cancer control outcomes (from primary prevention - survivorship-end-of-life).

We are currently working closely with our Alberta based research colleagues and local/regional cancer care centres, agencies, and foundations to promote physical activity for cancer survivors and provide greater accessibility to safe and effective programming across the province.
